Prime Minister Narendra said on Thursday that India’s agenda for the Group of Twenty (G20) will be inclusive, ambitious, and action-oriented, as the country takes over the presidency of the premier forum for international economic cooperation today.
PM Modi stated in a blog post that India will work to promote a universal sense of oneness and that priorities will be determined not only in consultation with G20 partners but also with the Global South.
He emphasized that today’s major challenges, such as climate change, terrorism, and pandemics, cannot be solved by fighting one another but only by working together. He wrote, “India’s G20 agenda will be inclusive, ambitious, action-focused, and decisive. Let us work together to ensure that India’s G20 presidency is one of healing, harmony, and hope. Let us collaborate to create a new paradigm of human-centric globalization.”
During its G-20 presidency, India will host approximately 200 meetings in 32 different sectors across the country. According to the Prime Minister’s Office, the G-20 Summit next year will be one of the most high-profile international gatherings hosted by India (PMO).
The Prime Minister noted in his blog post that the previous 17 G20 Presidency delivered significant results, including ensuring macroeconomic stability, rationalizing international taxation, and relieving countries’ debt burdens, among many other outcomes. We will benefit from these accomplishments and build on them. However, as India assumes this important role, Prime Minister Modi asked, “Can the G20 go any further?” “Can we catalyze a fundamental mindset shift that will benefit humanity as a whole?”
“I believe we can,” he added. Using India’s theme of ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future,’ PM Modi stated that India’s G20 presidency will work to promote this universal sense of one-ness. “This is not just a catchphrase. It takes into account recent changes in human circumstances that we have collectively failed to recognize. “Today, we have the means to produce enough to meet the basic needs of all people on the planet,” he said.
Using India’s reform story as an example, PM Modi stated that during India’s G20 presidency, India will present India’s experiences, learnings, and models as possible templates for others, particularly the developing world. “Our G20 priorities will be shaped in consultation with not only our G20 partners but also our fellow travelers in the global South, whose voices are often unheard.” “Our priorities will be to heal our ‘One Earth,’ create harmony within our ‘One Family,’ and give hope for our ‘One Future,” he wrote.
